With an ear-to-ear smirk and a laugh, U.S. Senate candidate Jeff Greene responded to stories about the parties aboard his yacht, calling the whole thing a "silly sideshow."
The interview, posted today to YouTube by WPBF, mentions the first-person account printed here this week of Greene's former stewardess. Sharyn Peach recalled wild parties on the Palm Beach billionaire's yacht, full of naked girls hired to entertain celebrity guests. Peach wrote that she served Mike Tyson a drink while he was
getting oral sex and said that Greene treated yacht employees horribly.
In response, Greene said:
We have a zero-tolerance policy for any drugs or any illegal activity. I mean, I'm a 55-year-old businessman. This is whole... this is just a silly sideshow.
The denial was similar to the one he gave in a news conference last week, when he claimed the campaign of his opponent, U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek, had fabricated the stories, which have come from dozens of sources, including Tyson himself.
